In the Pentecost Season we pray together…….
Our Father who art in
heaven, Hallowed be thy Name, Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as
it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread;
And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass
against us; And lead us not into temptation, But deliver us from
evil. For thine
is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory,
forever and ever. Amen
Our faith tradition is based on a life-transforming story.
Holy Trinity’s Story and The ELCA’s story is both ancient and timely. It’s a
story of a powerful and patient God who has boundless love for all people of
the world, who brings justice for the oppressed. It’s a story of Jesus
Christ, changing lives. It’s a story that brings comfort and strength to
people who today live in modern, often unsettling times. Learn more about our
beliefs—and become a part of our story.
